  •   To the editor,   After looking at the sample ballot for the recall election concerning Derek Gore and his statement of justification,  I believe that I should make a comment. It appears that Mr. Gore continues to object to Judge Loren Tucker’s decision that seven members of the City Council violated the open meeting law when...
  •   Recall ballots for Derek Gore got mailed Monday to more than 500 of the Ward 4 constituents he represents on the Dillon City Council, according to Beaverhead County Election Officer Debra Scott.

It seems that Brillhart’s research needs honing, If that letter to Iran, signed by all those senators (all Republicans) is a violation of the Logan Act...

The Dillon Volunteer Fire Department responded to the first accident and upon arriving on the scene witnessed the second accident. According to DVFD Chief Mike McGinley, both accidents involved tractor-...
  •   The Dillon Beaver softball team’s offense thrived in its first action of spring last week, scoring 29 runs while splitting a pair of games. The Beavs led Anaconda on the road Thursday until a late rally by the Copperheads handed the Beavs a 17-15 loss. But the BCHS girls left nothing to chance in their home opener on Saturday, when...
